New Stephen Malkmus

Matador announced today that there will be in fact a new Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks record coming in 2011, and also added that the album was produced by Beck. The official release date is August 23rd, and while it isn't mentioned in the press release its safe to assume that digital copies will be available for purchase sooner than that as part of the label's Buy Early Get Now program.
The new long-player will be titled Mirror Traffic, and Matador also promised an MP3 at some point. It was also revealed that this will be the final Jicks recording with Janet Weiss on drums. She's got a lot going on these days. Jakes Morris of the Joggers will behind the kit when this act goes out on the road.
